Parked on lane near Collace - Took straight gorse lined path up to Dunsinane Hill (as mentioned in Shakespeare's Macbeth). Black Hill next thinking this was Kings seat alas no as a heavy shower finds us, just a TV dish up here. Kings Seat with its White trig a bit further. On through the heather. Summit bagged we drop crossing Den Burn and skirting Black Hill. On last climb though to explore the hill fort on Dunsinane Hill before returning to the car.briandavies27/04/2019

Solo. From parking area SE of Collace where a path to Dunsinane Hill starts. Up path to Dunsinane Hill. On summit is impressive hill fort. Dunsinane features in Shakespeare's play MacBeth. Continued to Black Hill and King's Seat. Looked for Broch marked on OS 1:50,000 map but rather doubt that there is one. Descended from King's Seat on track to Fairygreen Farm and the road and hence on the road back to Collace.pwbellarby17/02/2012
